Visa Issues Continue As Renegades Replace Mousesports At IEM Beijing

It’s a common story we have come to accept in esports, as another visa issue causes Mousesports to drop out of IEM Beijing. They are the second team to drop out, following Team Liquid who were replaced by ENCE Gaming.

It’s sad that we’re not able to attend IEM Beijing due to visa issues. 😢 https://t.co/PBii9yiiI3

Taking their spot are the Renegades, who recently placed 4th at StarSeries Season 8. The Renegades are also no strangers of visa issues themselves as they struggled earlier this year with player Gratisfaction, who had to sit out several months of tournaments until he was cleared to play in the U.S. again.
